Last year, the Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW (ECC) started a new Multicultural Leadership Sustainability Project called ‘Step Together’. This project was offered to CALD organisations to support them to raise environmental awareness and implement projects to reduce waste, water or energy within the organisations and the communities they are working with.
Sustainable Living Project run by ECC and Tzu Chi Foundation formed a partnership to foster community leaders to protect. Now Adrian from Tzu Chi is telling us how beneficial partnership and workshops are to the foundation and are going to be to the CALD communities.
